A Sisterly Faith That Serves

The women of Calvary Chapel Beaumont studied the book of James this summer. Today was our last teaching. The worship was awesome. God chose just the right songs for today, and the Holy Spirit was heavy in the sanctuary. Thank you, Worship Team.

If you only want the teaching, scroll to 20 minutes and about 26 seconds.

We refocused from the earthly to the heavenly.

We considered how to have a sisterly faith that serves.

I pray that you will be blessed.

After you watch the teaching, return to this post and let me know how I can pray for you.

Please share.

ALL for Love

I love chocolate. I love to take walks with my hubby. I love my husband deeply. Three kinds of love, yet, we use the same word for each. I might choose different words and rephrase my sentences: “Chocolate excites my tastebuds. I enjoy taking walks with my hubby. My love for my husband causes me to bless him.”

How do I know that my husband loves me? By his thoughtfulness – his actions. Some of you may remember that I had a bicycle accident a month ago. I am still recovering from it, and have to keep my leg propped up. Sunday morning, I found my pillow on top of some plastic boxes under my desk, waiting for my swollen leg to rest on it.

The Living Promise

“[T]he blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God. Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.” Hebrews 9:14-15 (ESV)

Jesus’ followers are purified to serve our Living God!

Jesus offered Himself as The Perfect Sacrifice to pay for my sins, your sins, and the sins of the world. The sins of our past are dead. We are now new creations in Christ. God has prepared new works for us to accomplish.

We live to serve our living God!

Please share how you will serve God today.

Bruised and Broken? Pray Like Job!

Those bruises are mine. They disrupted my plans three weeks ago. But God had other plans. He gave me time with Him – a different kind of time than I had planned on. A time of resetting priorities. A time of prayer and accepting help from others.

Are you bruised and broken today? Has COVID-19 shattered your health? Has your bank account dwindled? Did hope flee from you?
